The Iguana 29 - an ultra-modern amphibious tender...

Design

She’s good for up to 35 knots on the water and a modest 8kmph for manoeuvring ashore.

AUGUST 2011

The first Iguana 29 amphibious tender will be unveiled at this year’s Festival de la Plaisance de Cannes (Sept 6-11).
Originally presented as a concept at Paris Nautic ’10 in December, this fascinating design delivers 35-knot performance in the water and up to 8kmph on land. Her on-water performance is possible because the twin all-terrain caterpillar-track assemblies that propel her ashore, retract into each chine flushly and so do not interrupt the planing surfaces drawn by naval architect Tanguy le Bihan.
The crisp styling is the work of Antoine Fritsch Associés
The Iguana 29 is priced at around €184,000 excluding VAT.
Founded by Antoine Brugidou, French company Iguana Yachts has spent the past three years developing this design.
